REPORT: How Great Power Competition Is Reshaping Civic Activism

Facebook Twitter Email

Check out this great new report on Global Civil Society in a Geopolitical Age: How Great Power Competition Is Reshaping Civic Activism, just published by Carnegie Europe.

The volume starts from the premiss that civil society actors around the world are grappling with competition between values systems. Rising geopolitical tensions affect international civil society and its role in this shifting global order, and there is a risk that competition between the lines of America, China and Russia will see greater efforts to manipulate or commandeer civil society for narrow self-interest.

So how is this playing out in different countries and regions?

The report features a series of essays, including a piece on African Civil Society and the External Influences That Shape It by our very own Nic Cheeseman.
